    • Obituary:

      RIVERDALE, Idaho Carmen Benson Lewis our beloved mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully Friday, Aug. 17, 2001, as a result of her age. She was born in Preston, Idaho on Nov. 4, 1911, to Frank Taft and Elizabeth Greaves Eames Benson. She is preceded in death by her husband, three of her sisters, an infant brother, and her twin brother. Her last living sister, Zenda Mabey, resides in Salt Lake City.

      Carmen married Robert Moss Lewis on Sept. 13, 1936. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan, Utah Temple. They have six children, Ann (Carvel, deceased) Stephenson, N. Hollywood,Calif., Colleen (Warren) Wilde, Preston, Idaho, Robert M. (Renae) Lewis, Arvada, Colo., H. Benson (Julie) Lewis, Sandy, Utah, Lynne (Steve) Cherrington, Orem, Utah, Beth (Bud) Alford, Idaho Falls, Idaho; 30 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.Carmen lived her life in Cache Valley except for two years while she attended Brigham Young University. She and Moss lived their entire married lives on their farm in Riverdale. Carmens great love and focus in life was her family. Her greatest satisfaction was in seeing them succeed. We will miss her wit, grit, and her special love for each of us.

      She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where, among other things, she taught primary for 25 years and young women for many years. The family wishes to express appreciation to the caregivers at the Franklin County Nursing Home for their kindness and diligence in providing for her care.

      Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 20, 2001 in the Riverdale Ward Chapel with Bishop Sam Smith conducting. Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m., Sunday, at Webb Funeral Home, 109 E. Oneida, Preston, and from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday at the church. Burial will be in the Preston Cemetery.
